The Dentist Who Gets It: The No-BS Blueprint for Success by Steve Hymovitch (a.k.a. “Dr. H”) is a book for those in specialty healthcare, or healthcare or business in general, looking for momentum in their business and life. It looks past “quick fixes” to putting the time in for success; and guides readers to the path where they can marry their head and heart—and be successful professionally and personally. The book fills a void for those in healthcare who are left in an uphill battle for success after graduate school, daunted by debt and lacking business acumen. Dr. H, a self-made man, shares his tried-and-true methods for success—from keeping pace with the latest healthcare trends, to leading in today’s environment, managing balance sheets, and selling a practice for a profit. Using self-deprecating and smart humor, The Dentist Who Gets It is an enjoyable read that helps readers figure out where they are and where they want to go.
This book provided a theoretical framework for understanding the seemingly idiosyncratic business practices of the Dental industry. The Dentist Who Gets It does not read like an “academic textbook”; it is truly engaging on a personal level, while at the same time offering a rigorous lesson for success. It should be required reading for every dentist aspiring to make a difference for patients, and in their own personal career.
The Dentist Who Gets It provides an essential tool kit that gives the practitioner a roadmap to a successful practice that elevates it above those of his/her peers. Hymovitch’s book is written from a dental perspective but the “takeaways” are universal and equally usable to guarantee an outstanding practice for the allopathic, osteopathic, naturopathic, or chiropractic physician.
This book should be a bible for every leader aspiring for innovation. Understand and practice the principles in this book and it will substantially increase your chances of winning through innovation.
The Dentist Who Gets It is full of takeaways and nuggets of wisdom that any health professional can use right away. Dr. Steve’s reference points that paint physical pictures as his message about the struggles he endured in becoming a dentist and then endodontist are relatable to so many other careers! Can’t wait for his next book!
The Dentist Who Gets It is an easy-to-read and entertaining blueprint that will lead practitioners to success! It is filled with lots of helpful “pearls” and is valuable in all healthcare fields, not just dentistry.
When Steve Hymovitch and I were in the post-graduate endodontic program at Tufts School of Dental Medicine, he had an uncanny knack for turning complex endodontic journal articles in easy-to-understand summaries. That is essentially what he does in The Dentist Who Gets It, except that he focuses on business practices. This book supplies you both with concepts that you can apply immediately, and that you can consider in the future. Hymovitch shares insights into his thought processes as he expanded his business, and explains some of the risks that he took along the way. You may well come away from the book inspired and thinking, “If he can do it, I can do it.”
Dr. Steve Hymovitch (a.k.a. "Dr H") is “the dentist who GETS it”—“it” being the business side of dentistry. A serial entrepreneur, Dr. H grew his Tucson and Phoenix-based practice, Valley Endodontics & Oral Surgery, into more than twenty offices, making it the largest Endodontic/Oral Surgery practice in the Southwestern United States. He has sold two of his practices to private-equity backed corporations, affording him unique “insider’s knowledge” of this side of business. As co-founder of The Scottsdale Leadership & Coaching Center, Dr. H is a certified executive coach who enjoys helping fellow business owners in the U.S. and Canada scale their businesses to help more people and build their balance sheets. Dr. H has an MBA from Arizona State University, DDS from McGill University, and a root canal specialty degree from Tufts University. His book, The Dentist Who Gets It: The No-BS Blueprint for Success, will be available later this year.
